He informed that originally the public meeting was scheduled on March 5 but due to some other programme it has been deferred and the gathering has nothing to do with the visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah who is likely to visit the state on March 8.

Debbarma said that while they would be pushing for its demand for Greater Tipraland, Tipra Motha would also be putting forth the demand for holding the village council polls in the TTAADC at the earliest.

Notably, as many as 785 village councils spread across Tripura ADC had their tenures expired a few months back but the elections could not be held due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
